Boring Keynote

The only interesting part was when they had "network" issues. I'm sure the developer community was happy, but pretty boring to me...although better than Facebook's.

On another topic, I hate it when a company implements a nice service seen elsewhere, and everyone starts screaming about copying. I don't care who copied who. I want variety.
I never said it something new Apple did,,, all I said was they came out with with AFTER Apple did, suggesting they obviously saw what Apple was doing and thought "hey, why don't we try that to."

Thus, the thinking, why didn't Google do something before ?

Sorry, but i just like to point out every detail here, and bring it up as it being strange since Google never thought abut their own idea.

Does anyone ever get the feeling that we all argue about the exact same stuff day after day, and the only thing that changes are a few names or phrases here and there?

Also Google rules.

And cannot the same be said about Apple looking what Microsoft, Steam and other were doing and thinking "hey, why don't we try that too"?

Why it is Google looking at Apple and not Google looking at Microsoft and Steam?

No, we hear that in sites like this, another totally different thing is reality. The world doesn't revolves around Apple

Blasphemy!

We all know the world doesn't do anything if Apple didn't do it.

Love how it's cross-platform; something GameCenter isn't.

Don't even say it's on iOS and OS X. In order to use the latest features, you MUST upgrade to the newest iOS or OS X; meaning previous versions are SOL in regards of access to features. Meanwhile, Google is making it so no one needs to upgrade to the latest version to use the game services.

"Hmm. Sounds like something the Playstation 3, Xbox360, the Wii, and Steam have had since well before 2007. What makes your idea any different from theres"?

"Ours is on a smartphone, your honor. We invented smartphones. It's our innovation".

"THAT SETTLES IT! GOOGLE OWES APPLE 15 BILLION DOLLARS FOR PATENT THEFT".

And then we'll see tons of "Google ripped off Apple's ideas, Apple is allowed to protect their ideas, and Google paid the price" posts in response. It'll be wonderful.

edit: and then it dawned on me that I'm replying to a months old thread. THE SHAAAAMMMMEEE!

cross platform is a great thing, this thing is definitely better than the game centre
